Though the film seems less like a theatrical release and more like something that might play on an obscure PBS station at 2 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon, it's reasonably interesting as a personality study.
An unabashed celebration of geekitude, idealism and the will to win.
Even though the science fair was something your other classmates did while you mastered Pitfall!, the sights in Whiz Kids will no doubt stir you.
Dwelling as much on setbacks and hurdles as on the glitter of competition, this quietly absorbing film is finally more about character formation -- curiosity, persistence, endurance -- than about achievement as a means to some extrinsic social end.
Harmain is one of three students that filmmaker Tom Shepherd focuses on. Their youthful enthusiasm, and impressive enterprise and intelligence are downright inspiring.
"Spellbound" taken to far greater heights. A touching and honest portrayal of the fight to be the best in the least glitzy business in America---science.
Captivating, suspenseful, inspirational and profoundly illuminating.
All three kids are disarmingly charming and ambitious, which means that the directors don't have to work very hard to get you rooting for them to succeed.
Whiz Kids keeps you in suspense about who'll take home the $100,000 prize, but it's clear that all these kids know how to apply the American credo of equal opportunity to the notion of competition. And win.
An eager-to-please documentary about teenage science experts, Whiz Kids mostly avoids the dark side of life, though its innocence is somewhat refreshing.
Inside look at the Intel competition celebrates the U.S. is still an intellectual meritocracy where smart kids in public schools can work hard, excel and gain recognition.
An extraordinary documentary about three smart, intense, and talented teenagers in the Intel Science Talent Search.
Three young scientists compete for the most prestigious youth science prize in the country in this documentary that follows their journey from regional science fairs to the final competition. Follows in the footsteps of other such documentaries as SPELLBOUND and MAD HOT BALLROOM, and while the stakes here are much higher and the subject much deeper, it ultimately has a "been there, done that" feel to it.
